Episode Info: Happy New Year Bowlers! Our New Year's resolution is to further the fight for cannabis freedom in 2015. One significant victory has already been achieved this year. The community worked together and made #RecallChadwick (http://bowlafterbowl.com/2014/10/25/episode-013-recallchadwick/) a success by gathering more than 300 valid signatures. To avoid a recall, Councilwoman Virginia Chadwick resigned last Monday. She painted a picture of herself as a good civil servant and proclaimed "real leaders" in the community had comforted her and told her that "the recall was ridiculous." When the floor was briefly opened for public comment, only one Columbia resident spoke, saying, "Don't let the door hit ya." However, the council members lavished Chadwick with praise for "representing her ward" and her leadership on Tobacco 21 (http://bowlafterbowl.com/2014/12/20/tobacco-21-columbia-mo-019/). Spencer drafted a petition to repeal Tobacco 21 but only had 20 days to acquire more than 3,200 signatures. That time period included the holidays, when most Columbia residents were out of town. But the fight is just beginning.

Community members dedicating time for freedom fighting deserve compensation. Donations to MLA can be made through PayPal.   (http://bowlafterbowl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/uber-logo-150x150.jpg)Another hot city issue is the continued illegal operation of Uber within the city limits of Columbia. This flat-out disregard for the law has apparently angered the city council. Of course, the same city council let Opus skirt many city laws and legal processes when they secured permission to construct a student housing complex. Laura Nauser, who is supposedly the most libertarian member of the city council, was the first out of the gates last Monday night to call for court action against Uber. At Bowl After Bowl we have a different definition than Ginny Chadwick of what makes a "real leader." One example that comes to mind is Show-Me Cannabis (http://show-mecannabis.com/) Deputy Director Amber Langston. She will be hosting an event in Kansas City tonight that we will be attending. Recently, Langston was covered by the Kansas City Star. Here is a video of her speaking at the Joplin, Mo. Cannabis Revival 2
